Now this is the bomb-diggety!

Last Update: September 16, 2015

The first line and last line in this post are the only text I typed myself...just read on... you'll see what I mean!

So here I am leaving my computer & I wasn't sure what I was looking for it today. But I decided I needed some dictation software. I've been looking around at a lot of different brands such as dragon technology voice chat some others. But after quite a while looking it was obvious that this wasn't going to be a simple task. So, in the end somehow while messing around with the Google Chrome browser 64 bit version, that wouldn't install properly. I discovered a small application on Google Play Store, called voice note 2. Is this speech to text version 2.5.2 that seems to run almost flawlessly in a small window that is still attached to the internet but has features such as pronunciation alright should say, not pronunciation but, oh darn what are periods commas exclamation points in Colin's all about for some reason it just blows my mind I cannot think of the word.

Another really cool feature about this system as you can pre program automatic speech to symbol graphic capabilities such as every time I say the word. I get a. Now that makes a little difficult when I need to use the word. So I may have to add a extension on to that to make it work properly and it even checks my grammar as you just noticed I said all you would have noticed because all you see is the written word it said extension and the program automatically plugged in an extension which is proper graphics. That's probably going to be a pretty long sentence without a comma.

Now it's kind of incredible to me, that the software, is capable of picking up the little nuances in my voice and being able to properly spell every word that I'm pronouncing. Now the fact is, that I do have a headset mic and I do believe that makes a bit of a difference if I were using the desktop mic it would probably more difficult. The paragraph this just goes to show how technology has come to benefit us as a people. It's almost mind boggling, to imagine, that this stuff never existed but a few years ago and we are here witnessing technology in the making in our generation.

I can only say I will be definitely using this feature that I just recently discovered this voice note to speech to text version 2.5.2 and every upgrade the fellas afterwards because I am simply amazed at what it is capable of and how it could literally change the landscape and the way I produce bug posts from here on out. I will be able to sit down without concern over what I'm about to type and free flow of thoughts throughout the process, continue to create, inspire, well I just discovered my first glitch in the system I had gotten to a point well maybe it's just the way you speak.

What I just discovered, is that there is a limit to how much you can say it one time in a sentence. If you continue to ramble on his I just was, the software tends to stop and see since tracks. Either way, this software is pretty amazing and it does just what I needed to do when it comes to being able to multitask work on the keyboard and create video edits while speaking and writing a blog post basically hands-free at the same time.

So all in all, I'm very pleased with what I just created in a matter of 2 & a half minutes of speaking, well maybe 5 total. But, in the end what I've discovered is I am certainly going to be able to save a ton of time and write many more blog posts without the need to worry about typing grammar punctuation etc etc even though I will have to go back and clean some of it up in the end.

I'm going to leave this text file exactly as it came off of voice note 2. So you can witness for yourself exactly what the software is capable of. I laid not one finger up on the keyboard to produce this entire blog post. Pretty cool, hey?

Great post. I have been using Windows speech recognition program for quite awhile (using it right now). It is pretty cool. You do have to learn quite a few commands, but once you get those down it goes really smoothly. I believe all Windows operating systems have speech recognition software built in and it's available in English, French, Spanish, German, Japanese, simplified Chinese, and traditional Chinese. Once you get more used to it you will like it even better. Thanks for the post. Rick.

Yes! I've tried it several times in the past, but never with much luck. Now with Cortana inside my Windows 10 machine, I figured I'd give it another...

Seems she's grown up a bit since we last worked together!

Hmmm. Sounds interesting. I used Dragon in the past. This sounds like a great new option. Thanks! Like Darwyn said, it could really help a person flow with their thoughts. I find when I type (and I am slow), I do lose track of where I am going sometimes :-)

This would be one of the main reasons I would use dictation software. I consider myself a pretty good writer, but I tend to go back over every little thing I write, as I write, in an attempt to make it perfect.

That slows the creative process, nearly cripples it actually. I'm looking forward to a new approach to blogging.

Hey Leland, this sounds like an amazing piece of kit. Will add this to my toolbox for sure. Ok you may have to go back in and break up a few sentences and change a few words etc. This is still way quicker than the normal pedestrian approach I think. A preempted script of such with some headers and a couple of pointers could really get you on a flow?. Thanks for the heads up my friend.
Cheers

This was my very first run with the software. As I went on I began to realize what it took to get proper structure in sentencing and paragraphing. Once you get the hang of it, it's a pretty straightforward approach...much like the old telegraph.

Meet me later (comma) I'll be at the park (stop)(new paragraph)

I was pretty shocked that it can usually determine when to use numbers vs. words. And when it got the abbreviation for "etc.", I had to laugh out loud!
